We stayed here 11 years ago on our Honeymoon, it was great,( different owners), and again a few years later, (new owners), it was still nice, they had just bought the Motel.
Came back 11 years after the first trip, and the room we got was size of a woodshed, and out back in a corner, no room to move, phone did-not work, WiFi did-not work, the room need more cleaning, all and all very disapointed in the place, i think maybe the thrill is gone for the new owners, that is very sad as at one time it was the best place to stay, so clean, and they just don't seem to care to keep that feel about the place, we will not go back, and also the heater did not work, and of course when they were told all of these things, there response, my no one else said anything about that.
Sorry to see the best place in Tomstone go down hill, hope the old owners will buy it back and turn it around. Sorry guys, but thats the truth of it, once a great place to stay, now won't return. PS Parking is really bad, not enough for all the room's, and then they added on the 2 outback woodshed size rooms........

This is a very relaxed easy going and friendly place to stay when visiting Tombestone.
The room we stayed in was comfortable it had everything we needed. The only things
we would have liked would have been a coffee maker in the room and a larger T.V.
but apart from that the Motel is very well situated to enjoy the atmosphere of Tombestone
without using the car.The owners we found were very helpful and friendly.

Stopped here for four nights and have got no complaints. Room small but comfortable, size of the room was my own fault as when I booked I said I would be alone. It has a slightly dated but cosy feel. I have also stayed at the Larian and I would say The Trailriders has a slight edge.

If the owners rebut this, they will say it is because they did not refund our second night. However, let me say we had already packed our car to leave before they said it was 24 hours for a cancellation because we didn't care - we were leaving that place.

First of all, when we arrived, the desk person was very disorganized and seemed to have alcohol on his breath. (We drink - but not when we are working). Then we went to the room, and turned on the light - only to find two light bulbs out in the overhead ceiling fan. By now, the office was already closed. We tried the light over one of the beds - it also didn't work. The remote to the TV - didn't work. The WiFi access - didn't work. Then after my husband took a shower, I moved what I thought was the washcloth he used - instead it was a DRIED DIRTY CLOTH from a previous visitor. Last but not least with temps in the 40s, the heater didn't work. After a cold sleepless night on a squeaky lumpy bed, we decided to shorten our stay in Tombstone.

When we brought this to the attention of the owner Paul the next morning, he was too busy visiting with other guests to seriously address the concerns. He stated the heater wasn't lit yet due to the temparatures not being low enough and the wifi was iffy at best. Should I mention the locals we had breakfast with were all wearing at least a sweater that morning?

While we were seeing the sites the owner's wife called and told us the batteries were out in the remote, and they were getting the heaters lit that day, and the room would be refunded for the second night if they were able to book a guest. She said Paul was rather busy when we came in to tell him about our concerns (yes - visiting). .She never mentioned the dirty wash cloth or multiple lights being out.

We stayed at two other 1940s motels on this trip and they were fantastic. Too bad Trail Riders is not one of those types of stops.

Run to any other available motel! We entered our room to find garbage and food crumbs left by a previous occupant on one of the beds. There were two softsoap dispensers. The one in the shower was empty, the one next to the sink smelled something awful. No shampoo, no hairdryer. Spiderwebs in corners of the room. A bottle left in the refrigerator by previous occupant. TV remote control did not work; I took it to the office, the person on duty replaced the batteries. Walked back to my room, remote still did not work. Opened my door to go back to the office, and the people working were sitting lined up outside the office with friends, smoking. I told him the remote still didn't work, and he was not interested in getting up or leaving his cigarette to help out. The cigarette smoke drifted in to our room - pretty disgusting if you're a non-smoker. We opened the back curtain to a view of garbage, tools and junk. All of this, and the earliest check out time we have ever seen - 10:00 am. Great if you're on vacation - NOT. There are better places to spend your hard earned money.

Originally booked it as I saw they had a hot tub and swimming pool. I thought both would be nice after a 9 hour drive, having back problems :-) The microwave and mini fridge are heaven sent! Very friendly staff and clean rooms. Will definitely be coming back to Tombstone and definitely staying here.
